I've been watching mock-u-mercials for Utilikilts. They're all he-man awesomeness. I highly recommend "Carried Away (Wife)", "Reason #223 - Protection", "Kilt vs Dress", and "The Breakup".

I have a confession to make. I only just started reading Hiatus just now.

To be fair, it began during Lent when I was off of all webcomics.

And the internet is being evil, this evening.

Nevermind, it's mostly just firefox. I'm debating opening the hunt for a different browser as firefox can be a very temperamental browser.

I downloaded Doctor Horrible. And it made me feel like a Good Person that I paid for it even. Now Joss may even be able to pay the cast and crew!

For those of you who haven't yet heard, Joss has recenty made Doctor Horrible and it is amazing and will be free to watch until Sunday, 20 July.

Go.

Watch it now.

And be more fulfilled in your life for having done so.

It seems that one of my poems has been published at an online journal, The Alexandrian.

Neat.

So the past two days I've gotten post. Yesterday my socks arrived from Sock Dreams. I got two pairs of their Military Bootsocks in black to wear with my kilt. I also got a pair of their Super Stripes in charcoal and grey. And then today I got an early birthday gift from Janelle: a copy of Nurk as well as a print of The Taxman (140/150 and signed!) by the same person! And she gave me this awesome, awesome card!

We're talking some pretty awesome gifts and post, here.

I was just reading this article and came across a reference to Canada's thunderstorm season. A season of which I'd never heard before. A glance at their map of lightening density explained a few things to me. *facedesk* I like BC SO much better. Apparently that means the number of storms we've been having here is not, as I thought and hoped, absurd, but very possibly normal. Joy.

I love this band so much.

Oi... back from Kalamazoo and general awesomeness...

Finally in my own place and my own room and I really need to finish unpacking from moving, but that is for another day: perhaps tomorrow.

I've got some ideas and motivation for papers this summer.

And this picture is awesome! Apparently it's seniors learning to fence "at the Catholic Homes Corpus Christi in Melbourne, Australia...as a way to keep fit." I so want to be them when I get older! The one with the cane is my favourite.

I can so very relate to this. Not so much on the work part, but checking e-mail? >_>

Packing

I'm almost there. Most of my main stuff fit into one box, with another box for paper and a few other things. Two tote bags for clothes. The kitchen stuff plus food needs a bit more than the two boxes it got. And other than that there is my bed and a few other odds and ends. And then the books. Oh the books. I somehow have around 130 books here: some borrowed, a few library books, a number from home, and I'm not sure how many that I picked up over the year. Oh the books...

Some of you will have already seen this, but for those of you who haven't, many prayers are requested and appreciated for Central Heights Church and those who were at a Starfield concert there, last night. A section of the floor seems to have collapsed. This post has more detail. It also appeared at the Globe.

I love how some of my favourite stories seem to overlap in some of their basic concepts. For example, both Doctor Who (I think... for sure Torchwood) and Narbonic bring up the concept of reality blindness, where if it does not fit with your concept of reality, you can't see it. And again, Narbonic and Girl Genius bring up concepts of mad science and the notion of a mad scientist eventually breaking into their madness. And that it is usually a traumatic and disastrous event.

Tomorrow I challenge the MA Medieval Latin exam. Two pages of prose translation followed by a trip to the pub to either weep or celebrate. It should be good.
